Practical, Sexy or Both?

While women wear form-fitting swimsuits that compliment their bodies, I haven’t quite figured out why men here in the U.S. wear those awful baggy shorts that sag and weigh a ton when they get wet. Seems ridiculous. We somehow seem to relate the issue to masculinity, when nothing can look more masculine or more spectacularly compliment the male form  than a Speedo.

Sensual Swimwear … A Sexier Way to Swim

If you enjoy swimming and can’t do it naked, there is no better alternative than a Speedo, not to mention how good men look in them. Men that take care of their body, that is. The sense of freedom is exhilarating. The sensuality can’t be denied, they make a beach more visually interesting. There is no reason that guys not in that good of shape shouldn’t enjoy the weightless freedom Speedos provide.

For reasons I can’t begin to fathom, men don’t wear them in the U.S., except in competition swimming, which spectators seem to appreciate. Americans often define masculinity in unusual ways, which preclude form-fitting swim suits. On the beach men appear to prefer those baggy trunks that balloon in the wind and weigh a ton when they get wet. Yet the form-fitting cycling shorts are acceptable. Can you figure that out?

In time things may change in the U.S. Americans may eventually come to realize male bodies are as sensually beautiful as female bodies when it comes to swimwear, and American men will join the rest of the world in choosing what to wear for a day on the beach.

Men in Speedos

If a guy’s belly and love-handles hang over his waistline, I can understand why he might shy away from wearing a Speedo.  But what about the skinnier guys?  What’s up with those baggy outfits that sag down to the knees?  How do you swim in them?  Obvious isn’t it, male indoctrination, American style.  Never mind how comfortable they are, or sexy, or the fact they make swimming so much more pleasant . . . “real” men would never be caught dead in a Speedo.  Too bad.

When I lived in New Mexico, one of many memorable experiences was having a governor like Gary Johnson.  A thoughtful, logical man, he never shied away from speaking his mind, no matter how politically unpopular his position might be.  I have never admired a politician more.  He wasn’t afraid to sanction the legalization of drugs (he believed people either will or will not use drugs whether they are legal or not, and that the war on drugs only plays into the hands of criminals), nor was he afraid to get out and do a little jogging in his Speedo. (Sorry, no picture of the Governor.)
